Enough is Enough

I hear this song on the radio.
Over and over and over again.
I hear this song in between shows that my children are watching on television.
I hear this song on every music channel at my gym.
I hear this song when I go into Walmart.
And the mall.
And the grocery store.

My children are obsessed with this song.
They play this song on Youtube approximately 7621 times a day.
They sing this song in the shower.
And when they are playing with their Lego.

They argue about the correct words so they play this song again and again just to see who was right.
They turn the volume up as high as it will go.

Oldest child is even trying to put this song on my Ipod.
But no one can figure out how to put music on the damn thing.

To stop myself from completely losing my mind, I have started doing a funky dance every time I hear it.
The kids think I am crazy.
I am hoping it might stop them from playing this song.

So far, no luck.
Maybe if I do my funky dance and sing it in my opera voice............

Great post! I have a special request though. Your readers and I are dying to see a video of you doing your funky dance to Fireflies. Post one or we'll stage a revolt and stand outside your home singing the blessed song until you give in. lol
Glad to have found your blog through Mama Kat's. Great blog title!

I enjoyed your post! Funny, I have never heard that song . . . but I only have a 4 month old daughter . . . so I have "All The Pretty Little Horses" and "The Muffin Man" on constant repeat in my head.

OHHH I feel your pain, it's the same way around here. I used to like that song...and now it's one that I LOVE to HATE!

Stopping by from Mama Kats!

Have a good one.

Actually, I kinda like this song. But it probably lost its appeal after the 187th time. ;)

Jenny said...

Great post. I have never heard this song, but if I heard it as many times as you have I don't think I would like it anymore either.

Amy Whitley said...

Ha! Everyone's singing that song in this house, too!

Heatherlyn said...

I can so relate. When my kids find a song they like they play it over and over again too! It drives me a little crazy as well!

But it is a really cool song. ;)

I'd never seen the video - love all the old toys!

Foursons said...

Ummm yes, I agree! Video of your dance to the song is a must!

tara said...

i'm seconding @tweetingmama's request for video.

also, this is the second mention i've seen of this song on the mama kat tour...it really is catchy!

angie said...

I don't hear it often.....but I can see how you'd get sick of it. :)

angie said...

PS. I want to see the funky dance, too.

Lolli said...

My 13 and 10 year old daughters LOVE that song. We hear it a lot around our house!

Jonah LOVES this song. Sean and I hate it.

Jennifer said...

I really liked this song at first, but now I've heard it so much that I can't stand it.

Andrea (ace1028) said...

GREAT post. I've actually not heard this song before. I won't say I think it's OK, though! ;)

girlytwins said...

Haha. That song is everywhere right now around me too. Thanks for the laugh :)

Erin said...

I must be hangin out in all the wrong places this is the first time I have heard this song!

That is all.
